Training/Coaching Testimonials

As a CEO of a mid-sized not-for-profit, I have had many occasions to hear inspirational trainers across the country and abroad, however Carrie Stack surpasses them all. Carrie has the amazing ability to impact each of my 120 staff members as if each was the only person in the room. Her messages resonate with individuals from all walks of life and inform one’s professional and personal life equally. Carrie returns to Pathways once or twice a year by popular demand, each time leaving a stronger and more resilient and unified team.
